The Plot to Kill Jesus
45 (A)Many of the Jews therefore, (B)who had come with Mary and (C)had seen what he did, believed in him, 46 but some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done. 47 So the chief priests and the Pharisees (D)gathered (E)the council and said, (F)“What are we to do? For this man performs many signs. 48 If we let him go on like this, everyone will believe in him, and (G)the Romans will come and take away both our (H)place and our nation.” 49 But one of them, (I)Caiaphas, (J)who was high priest that year, said to them, “You know nothing at all. 50 Nor do you understand that (K)it is better for you that one man should die for the people, not that the whole nation should perish.” 51 He did not say this of his own accord, but (L)being high priest that year (M)he prophesied that Jesus would die for the nation, 52 and (N)not for the nation only, but also (O)to gather into one the children of God who are scattered abroad. 53 So from that day on they (P)made plans to put him to death.
54 Jesus therefore (Q)no longer walked openly among the Jews, but went from there to the region near the wilderness, to a town called Ephraim, and there he stayed with the disciples.
55 Now (R)the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and (S)many went up from the country to Jerusalem before the Passover (T)to purify themselves. 56 (U)They were looking for[a] Jesus and saying to one another as they stood in the temple, “What do you think? That he will not come to the feast at all?” 57 Now the chief priests and the Pharisees had given orders that if anyone knew where he was, he should let them know, so that they might arrest him.Read full chapter

English Standard Version
17 “I will show you; hear me,
and what I have seen I will declare
18 (what wise men have told,
without hiding it (A)from their fathers,
19 to whom alone the land was given,
and no (B)stranger passed among them).
20 The wicked man writhes in pain all his days,
through all the (C)years that are laid up for (D)the ruthless.
21 (E)Dreadful sounds are in his ears;
in (F)prosperity the destroyer will come upon him.
22 He does not believe that he will return out of darkness,
and he is marked for the sword.
23 He (G)wanders abroad for bread, saying, ‘Where is it?’
He knows that a day of darkness is ready at his hand;
24 distress and anguish terrify him;
they (H)prevail against him, like a king ready for battle.
25 Because he has stretched out his hand against God
and defies the Almighty,
26 (I)running (J)stubbornly against him
with a thickly bossed shield;
27 because he has (K)covered his face with his fat
and gathered fat upon his waist
28 and has lived in desolate cities,
in houses that none should inhabit,
which were ready to become heaps of ruins;
29 he will not be rich, and his wealth will not endure,
nor will his possessions spread over the earth;[a]
30 he will not depart from darkness;
the flame will dry up his shoots,
and by (L)the breath of his mouth he will depart.
31 Let him not (M)trust in emptiness, deceiving himself,
for emptiness will be his payment.
32 It will be paid in full (N)before his time,
and his branch will not be green.
33 He will shake off his unripe grape like the vine,
and cast off his blossom like the olive tree.
34 For (O)the company of the godless is barren,
and (P)fire consumes the tents of bribery.
35 They (Q)conceive trouble and give birth to evil,
and their (R)womb prepares deceit.”
- Job 15:29 Or nor will his produce bend down to the earth
